These speed sensor heads feature low harmonic emission, low flick noise, high sensitivity, CW and pulse mode operation, FCC part 15 compliance, and more. They’re available with various different antenna types, making them versatile for various applications.

The MA24118A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 18 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signal up to 18 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.

Bird’s 7020 Power Sensor provides forward and reflected power measurement over a 350 MHz to 4.0 GHz frequency range. It’s ideal for a myriad of applications including, but not limited to: public safety, WiMAX/WLAN, analog broadcast, analog/digital cellular, tactical military, radar, avionics, analog/digital broadcast, GPS, Bluetooth, public safety, telematics, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, and more.

SAGE Millimeter’s SSD series of ranging sensor heads are ideal for applications involving traffic monitoring, true ranging radar, automatic production lines, and automotive radar systems.

Rohde & Schwarz has designed two different two-path diode power sensor with excellent price/performace ratio and differing frequency ranges. With a dynamic range of 80 dB for measurement of CW and modulated signals and a maximum power of +20 dBm, these Power Sensors are very useful measurement instruments for a vast number of measurement tasks.

Keysight Technologies, Inc. offers the N6841A RF sensor designed to provide a cost effective solution for placing a fully capable RF monitoring station where it is needed, when it is needed, for any duration of time, and without complex siting constraints or physical infrastructures. This sensor is capable of operation over a wide temperature range of -15°C to 55°C, and can withstand harsh environments without additional expensive protective enclosures.

The MA24208A is a power sensor designed with “triple path” architecture that provides True-RMS measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signals from 10 MHz to 8 GHz over 80 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs high-performance digital processing which enables measurement speeds of >1,600 continuous power readings/s continuous and >11,000 buffered readings/s. It is intended to be used to increase throughput and reduce cost-of-test in any lab, high-volume manufacturing and field environment.

The Anritsu MA24105A Inline Peak Power Sensor is designed to take accurate average power measurements from 2 mW to 150 W and peak power measurements from 2 W  to 300 W over the frequency range of  350 MHz to 4 GHz. The sensor employs a “dual path” architecture that enables True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range allowing users to measure CW, multi-tone and digitally modulated signals such as LTE, LTE-TDD, GSM/EDGE, CDMA, W-CDMA, WiMAX, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, and LTE. The forward direction path also include a 4 MHz bandwidth channel that has peak and comparator/integrator circuits that add measurement functions such as PEP power, crest factor, CCDF, and burst average power. Another detection circuit on the reverse direction adds reverse power measurement capabilities including reverse power, reflection coefficient (magnitude), return-loss, and SWR. The presence of a micro-controller along with signal conditioning circuitry, ADC, and power supply in the sensor makes it a complete miniature power meter.
